Publisher's Summary

A gentleman decides to take a sea voyage to calm his nerves. But he encounters an eerie creature on board that has anything but that effect.


Audible Editor Reviews

It is the unyielding realism in the details of the story - of history, and of the ship on which this  tale unfolds - that allows the grotesque and mythic twist in the tale's plot to remain believable. Jack Benson' s performance of this 50-minute audio is nuanced and engaging, if not at all dramatic. Listeners will be hard pressed to recall that author F. Marion Crawford was a 19th-century cosmopolitan Italian, given that The Upper Berth has the tone of an all-American seafaring adventure story.
